If anyone knows us, they're aware of our obsession with nut butters. Nut butters are a great source of vegan protein, healthy fats, and vitamins, and we're constantly seeking new brands, which is why we were excited to discover Jem Organic's nut butters, which are raw, stone-ground, and packed with super-foods.
We love flavored nut butters (especially seasonal, specifically: pumpkin spice), but oftentimes, they're packed full of unnecessary additives such as palm fruit oil, excessive sodium, and processed sugars. Gem Organics, however, unlike most flavored nut butters, contains minimal, wholesome ingredients, and are made with raw super-foods and sweetened naturally with coconut sugar. What's not to love?
For a super-food-packed lunch, breakfast, or post-workout snack, we love spreading nut butters on rice cakes and topping them with assorted fruit, nuts and seeds, and super-foods. Below, we're sharing our favorite combinations.
Prep time: 5 mins Serves 2-3
6 rice cakes
2 tbsp Superfood Maqui Almond Butter
2 tbsp Superfood Cardamom Cashew Butter
1/2 tsp chia seeds
2 tbsp coconut flakes
1 tsp hemp hearts
2 tsp cacao nibs
1 banana, sliced
1 ripe kiwi
1. Spread the superfood almond butter and cashew butter on alternating rice cakes. You can also use mashed avocado as another option.
2. Top the cashew butter with: banana, cacao nibs, cinnamon, chia seeds, and hemp hearts. Top the super-food almond butter rice with: strawberries, chia seeds, coconut, blueberries, cacao nibs, and kiwi with coconut.
3. If using avocado, top with hemp seeds, sea salt, paprika, and nutritional yeast. Enjoy!
